Yvette Carnell: Obama Just Got Rolled by Willard “King of the Rats” Romney, How’d That Happen?
I knew there was a problem when I read The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates, a writer who is normally keenly insightful on issues of race and culture, praise Obama for a comment that wasn’t particularly praise-worthy.
Regarding the above clip, Coates made this flattering comment: “Barack Obama — master of the slow soundbite. It’s like watching Kareem’s sky-hook.” Except that it’s not. It’s not like watching a master at work or a man who is ‘playing chess, not checkers.’
Saying Romney is out of touch is something I would say. It’s something anybody would say. Don’t believe me? Just spend five minutes on your Facebook feed and you’ll see plenty of pithy photoshopped images of Romney wearing monocles, top hats, and bathing in $100 dollar bills . Everyone knows he’s elite and out of touch, so there’s nothing Kareem-like in stating the obvious. Obama’s not exceeding expectations with that observation, or in its delivery, but Democrats are so taken with Obama that they can’t see just how lazy his campaign game has become.
President Obama has spent the entire campaign not telling us what his second term will look like: FORWARD. That’s all we know, and we dare not push for more.
When’s the last time Obama had his nose bloodied? Hillary Clinton?
A line from “Glory”, delivered by Denzel Washington, comes to mind: “N*gga just forgot to duck, that’s all.” You forget to duck either because you haven’t fought in awhile or you don’t have anything worth fighting for. President Obama is great at playing to our highest ideals, but he’s inept when it comes to defending his own record or projecting his vision for America. Ask yourself why that is? Why couldn’t President Obama force Willard Romney, one of the weakest candidates to come down the pike in a long while, to explain his Cayman accounts or why he won’t extend what he gave Massachusetts – Romneycare – to the rest of the country? Nada. Obama didn’t push any of these issues. He just hung his head, gritted his teeth, and said “Governor Romney and I agree”. d**n.
